SYDNEY: The iF Awards (International Forum Design Awards) have been awarding fine design since 1953. Last year the Colombo cordless DECT phone caught the eye of the judges and it’s happened again at the Australian International Design Awards.

“We are very proud to have developed a phone for the Australian Market that is capable of achieving such a recognised position in terms of design,” said Ingram Micro director – Communications Division, Mark Franklin.

“In a market that is cluttered with ‘me too’ products, the Telstra Colombo is a ‘stand out’, packed with features and award winning style. Combine this with simplicity of operation and the trusted brand of Telstra and we are looking forward to growth with this product.”

The winners will be announced at the awards night on Friday 29 May at Peninsula at Central Pier Docklands, Melbourne.
